SEOUL, July 2 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) fired two short-range projectiles into its east waters Wednesday, a day after South Korea refused a proposal of the DPRK to stop all military hostilities.
The projectiles, presumed to be shells fired from 300-mm multiple-rocket launcher termed by South Korea as KN-09, were launched at 6:50 a.m. and 8 a.m. each, according to military sources cited by local media.
The projectiles, which flew some 180 km, were fired from Wonsan areas, the DPRK's southeastern region, into the east waters.
The DPRK launched two Scud missiles, which flew 500 kms, into its east waters on June 29 after firing three KN-09 shells on June 26, the South Korean military said.
South Korea refused Tuesday a proposal of the DPRK to stop all military hostilities from Friday, saying it lacked sincerity.
